Biotech Crops in Developing Countries: The Significance of Bt Rice and Phytase Maize in China

The 7:27-minute video Biotech Crops in Developing Countries: The Significance of Bt Rice and Phytase Maize in China highlights the impact of the Chinese government’s approval of biosafety certificates for the two biotech crops not only in meeting the demands of local rice and corn requirements of the country but in the opportunities it opens to other Asian countries which consume or use a majority of these two products. The video situates this development amidst a global scenario where 85 million farmers in 25 countries are already benefiting from planting biotech crops, most of whom are repeat farmers.
